Quite so. It was before the past 69 years to which I was referring.

What Stossel left out was that the world is safer now in large part because of our past response to violence including the wars we engaged in and won, not because of the Obama presidency as Obama would have us believe and his omission of that point perpetuates.
If Democrats could solicit black votes by pointing out all Democrats have done for black people in return for their past votes, they would surely do so. That they do not reveals that they cannot. Instead, they continue to solicit black votes by telling blacks how poor their lot in life remains despite their past support for Democrats and for the same reasons they promised to resolve in exchange for those past votes. It is like your doctor advising you to continue as his patient receiving the same treatment that has not worked because you are still as sick as you were when you went to him in the first place.
Trey Gowdy sure knows how to ask the right questions and persist in requiring an answer. The only thing he could do to improve would be to frankly point out that the reluctance and/or inability to provide a direct answer demonstrates that they have none that would counter the implication in the question of wrong doing. No contrary answer and evasive answers are, in fact, affirmative answers.
It is not that he should not have been surprised by Iraq's meltdown. It is that he wasn't. What surprised him was the peoples holding him to account for it.
The MSM has consistently exploited freedom of the press to advance the lefts political agenda. It should come as no surprise to them that the consequence of that is their losing that freedom to do anything other than that.
"If someone came to a doctor and asked him to cut off a perfectly healthy arm because it just felt "wrong" for the arm to be there, should the doctor do it?: In fact, people have done just that. I think it is called 'alien limb syndrome" and no, doctors should not and do not do it. Some with this affliction have even gone to the extreme of freezing off the offending limb. Like abortion, look for the prospect of that being done to prompt others to propose forcing doctors to do it and for us to pay for it.
defensible s/b indefensible
Taking full responsibility seems to be a get out of jail free card in this administration. Taking responsibility is not done by just saying it. An offer to resign would be taking responsibility in deed rather than just rhetorically. That it works so well for them one wonders why Obama hasn't played that card yet. After all, it has no consequences other than as an admittance of inadequacy. Oh, yeah! That is why.
It was a failure of the intelligence community but Obama has complete faith in it? That makes no sense whatsoever but it begs the question why should the intelligence community or the people have any faith in Obama? He indisputably did not heed his own administrations clear and persistent warnings. Given the continued questioning, saying 'we have been through this'; only confirms that their previous explanations were not adequate. I suppose they will next blame the news people for not asking the right questions at the right time in a way that they would have been forced to answer comprehensively. By now even his supporters must surely be chagrined at such disingenuous machinations and groan inwardly as they are yet again charged with defending the defensible. Given their loyalty and adoration he could so easily have turned this all around by simply acknowledging personal fault and pledging to make it right. As my sainted Mother used to say he 'lies when the truth would do him the most good'. Such arrogant narcissism is truly pathological. But having gotten to where he has without doing or contributing anything, I suppose it is inevitable that he attribute it to simply he being him. As he is still he, the fault for any failures must, then, lie elsewhere.
